Beyond (or Back to) Traditional Risk Factors: Preventing Cardiovascular Disease in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this issue, Muntner and colleagues show that persons with chronic kidney disease have a high prevalence of nontraditional risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD). The importance of these risk factors is uncertain in the general population and in patients with chronic kidney disease. Whether they cause CVD or are merely markers of CVD risk is unclear from the available evidence.
